Osteoconductivity of titanium-alloy implants may be improved when surface-modified by calcium ion (Ca2+) implantation. We studied the effects of Ca2+ implantation on osseointegration of a grit-blasted titanium-alloy stem using a canine total hip arthroplasty model. Fifteen dogs underwent bilateral hip arthroplasties and were sacrificed at 1, 6, and 12 months postoperatively. The hip components were evaluated by radiographic, qualitative, and quantitative histology methods. Radiographically and… CONTINUE READING
